Anyone done a dummy gauge cluster to a full gauge cluster swap?

I have an 86 Comanche with the 2.5L Standard trans and want to do the cluster swap.

I have a full gauge cluster in but not all the gauge work correctly.

What needs changed out and how do you go about it?

Oil Pressure

Voltage

Fuel

Temp.

 

My Tach is working believe it or not.

If you haven't done so yet, you will need to change the oil pressure switch to a sensor and the engine temp switch to a sensor.

 

The switched just turn on an idiot light.  The sensors send a signal to the gauge.

 

The volt and fuel should work in either type of cluster.  First make sure the cluster is good - not a fried circuit panel.

I noticed both the temp and oil switches are single wire. Will the sensors be single wire as well?

 

Thank you for your input.
